KINDERMUSIK® LEVEL 2 

Level 2 classes empower older toddlers to express their own ideas and experiment with their creativity. Through singing, dancing, and instrument-playing, each class provides a variety of enjoyable outlets for toddler energy while boosting cognitive and motor development. You’ll have the opportunity to connect with other parents and caregivers who are also experiencing the joys and complexities of these busy years. Learn how to utilize music, rhymes, spoken words, and even puppetry to create and streamline home routines. We’ll explore how music and dance, as well as the whole-child approach, can help children develop physically, cognitively, and emotionally.

KINDERMUSIK® LEVEL 3

Level 3 classes are recommended for Level 2 graduates who desire to embark on their lifelong musical journeys. Caregivers will arrive at the beginning of the class, then leave and return at the end. This unique setting provides a safe environment in which your children can gradually overcome separation anxiety and gain the confidence to learn alongside their teacher and classmates. Level 3 students will begin to interpret the relationship between sound and graphic notation symbols, learn how to communicate effectively and respectfully, and develop the skills necessary to play in an ensemble through instrument play and creative play.
